Beauty insiders have long been in the know about Shu Uemura cleansing beauty oil, so it's about time I addressed one of my favorite products. "Cleansing oil" may sound slightly like an oxymoron, but researchers now believe that certain oils can clean skin better than soaps can, but without the damaging effects of detergent. The oil spreads quickly and evenly across skin's surface, so you don't have to scrub to get out impurities. Skin feels noticeably more moisturized and even-textured after using this product. Shu Uemura's cleansing oil was already one of the best products on the market with its powerful antioxidant properties (coming from the green tea extract), but the oil is newly formulated with Gingko leaf extract for twice the anti-oxidant power. Besides the green tea and Gingko leaf, this product contains safflower, jojoba, macadamia nut, and corn oils for gentle cleansing and moisturizing. A delicate natural origin fragrance of ginger, citrus, and aromatic tea is thought to relieve stress and take your skin cleansing ritual to the next level. This product is a one-stop shop for cleansing, moisturizing, and stress relief.
Most importantly, it practically melts your makeup right off. I've tried plenty of eye-makeup removers in my time, but this product is hands-down the best out there. It takes my waterproof mascara off in a matter of seconds (regardless of how many coats I applied that day), but doesn't irritate my contacts.
